Medium Curing

MC30, MC70, MC250, MC800, MC3000

Cutback MC3000

Bitumen cutback MC3000 means solvent is medium caring which express that the solvent will vapor at medium speed. During applying the MC-3000 cutback bitumen, the solvent evaporates so the residue demonstrates perfect adhesion.

The bituminous cutback asphalt MC-3000 is recommended to use for road construction.


Application of Bitumen Cutback MC3000

The main application of MC3000 cutback is prime sealing, prime coating and manufacturing of asphalt pre-mix and used for maintenance of the road. Due to their lower viscosity medium caring cutback bituminous asphalt is proper for cold weather condition. medium curing cutback petroleum asphalt supplied by bitumen supply manufacturing from vacuum distillation of crude oil blended with a petroleum solvent.

The cutback asphalt MC3000 applying to waterproofing of surfaces, plug capillary voids, coat and bond loose mineral particles.
